Milanisti received good news from Simon Kjaer’s injury recovery progress while waiting for AC Milan’s transfer policy to strengthen the back line next season.
When against Genoa on December 1, 2021 in the Italian League, AC Milan had to lose Simon Kjaer until the end of the season due to a ligament injury.
Towards the second half of the Italian League, this news was a blow for AC Milan and Milanisti. Because Simon Kjaer is an important pillar in their back line.
However, the absence of Simon Kjaer can be covered by Pierre Kalulu’s charming appearance.
The French player actually plays at right-back, but due to the crisis at centre-back, coach Stefano Pioli paired him with Fikayo Tomori.
The Tomori-Kalulu duo took the public by surprise. The proof is this pair always get a clean sheet in the last month.
Now as reported by Tuttosport, the recovery is going well for Kjaer and he is optimistic about the future, eager to come back stronger.
Even so, there is still no definite news when Kjaer can graze again because it depends on recovery to be one hundred percent first.
This news is a breath of fresh air for AC Milan, because Alessio Romagnoli will most likely leave the San Siro at the end of this season after a tough contract extension.
Meanwhile, AC Milan are trying hard to bring in Lille defender Sven Botman in order to cover the loss of the role of Alessio Romagnoli and Simon Kjaer’s back-up.
The management of the Red and Black Team, which is commanded by Paolo Maldini, reportedly wants to accelerate the move of Lille defender Sven Botman.
Speed up Transfer Botman
Maldini is currently seeking final negotiations with Lille to redeem the former Ajax Amsterdam defender.
Botman himself has reportedly said he agreed to join AC Milan in the summer transfer market.
He was convinced to migrate to Italy after being convinced by his former partner at Lille who is now AC Milan’s main goalkeeper, Mike Maignan.
Maignan’s persuasion even made Botman refuse an exorbitant fee from Newscastle United, which until now continues to approach him.
That is why Botman’s future is in AC Milan’s hands. In fact, Calciomercato.com claims that the Rossoneri want to immediately realize the transfer.
At least, in the next 15 days AC Milan is targeted to be able to inaugurate the arrival of Botman, although the summer transfer market has not yet opened.
It is believed that the Rossoneri and Lille agreed to the transfer of Botman’s move at 30 million euros, equivalent to Rp. 475 billion.
In addition, AC Milan is also rumored to be bringing in Lazio defender Francesco Acerbi, who is currently having problems with the fans of the Italian capital.
Additional Strength from Acerbi
Reported by Il Messaggero, Francesco Acerbi now has the intention to leave Lazio even though he still has a contract remaining until 2025. He is interested in being able to wear the Rossoneri red and black shirt again.
The reason is the disharmony relationship with hard-line fans aka ultras from Lazio that Acerbi has felt since December last year.
The Il Biacocelesti supporters did not accept the behavior of the player who celebrated the goal by gesturing silence against Genoa (18/12/21).
In fact, Acerbi only replied to the criticism leveled at him before the match.
However, as a result he was boycotted by the ultras and even asked to leave the Olimpico Rome by open letter.
